Member Briefing: Latino Community Needs Assessment with El Centro de la Raza

Tue, February 6, 2018,
10:00am to 11:30am PST
Online + Seattle, WA
Philanthropy Northwest Office, 2101 4th Ave Suite 650 Seattle WA 98121

El Centro de la Raza carried out two research studies as a part of the 2017 Community Needs Assessment. Members of the research team and Steering Committee will brief Philanthropy Northwest members on the studies’ findings, and provide recommendations for funders on how to address to the current needs of the Latino community in our region. The report summarizes the current needs of Latinos in Seattle and South King County, and used a Community Based Participatory Research approach to survey over 200 people and conduct five focus groups. While the results of the study are specific to King County, the themes and methods of data collection are relevant to funders across the Northwest.
